Having issue after windows update, miner can no longer restart itself when thread crash or manual restart time. Miner shows restarting waiting 15s but after 15s CMD closes. I also have had random CMD closure after a few days or sometimes less than 12hours of running.

Anyone with the same issues? Or know a fix ?  (its getting annoying waking up or coming home to find no errors messages in windows or in the miner log, but the program had just turned off and will not restart.)

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

After AMD finally released Linux driver which can be used for Ethash mining with RX5700 cards, the release candidate of 4.8 is ready for download. You can download PhoenixMiner 4.8b from here:

(MEGA links are no longer active)

If you want to check the integrity of the downloaded file, please use the following hashes (you need the last file PhoenixMiner_NVRTC_Windows.zip only if you want to mine BCI with Nvdia cards under Windows):

The new features in this release are:

  • Added support for the latest AMD drivers under Linux 19.30-934563 and for mining with RX5700 cards under Linux. Note that drivers are quite buggy and most of the overclocking options don't work, as well as most of the hardware monitoring options.
  • Added a new flexible way for setting GPU-specific options with selectors. Example: -cclock 1-3:1090,4:1300 -mclock nvidia:+450,amd:2000,*:1900,gtx*1070*ti:+200 See bellow for more information
  • Validated support for the latest AMD Windows drivers 19.11.1 (but they already work with 4.7c because there were no significant changes in the OpenCL driver)
  • Other small improvements and fixes.

If you don't need or want any of these features, there is no need to upgrade yet.

About the AMD Linux drivers 19.30-934563:

These drivers finally fix the RX5700 TLB problem but they are not perfect:
- Most of the hardware monitoring options don't work for RX5700 cards - even the temperature is not reported correctly. Only the power usage, fan speed, and core voltage are reported.
- Almost all hardware control options don't work for RX5700 cards either with the notable exception of power limit, so the only way to avoid wasting power is to use -powlim -45 or something like this. The fan control options doesn't work either so you will be relying on auto-fan.

About the new selectors for the GPU-specific options:

This is best explained by example: -cclock *:1100,1-3:1090,4:1300 - here we are setting core clock to 1100 MHz
for all cards, except the cards 1 to 3, on which it is set to 1090 MHz, and card 4 to 1300 MHz.

The part before the colon : is the selector, which selects the GPUs for which the value after the colon is applied. The selector can be:
  - single GPU index: e.g. 5:1000 sets 1000 for the 5th GPU
  - range of GPU indexes: e.g 2-5:1200 sets 1200 for the GPUs 2,3,4, and 5
  - asterisk, which sets the value for all GPUs
  - label amd or nvidia: e.g. amd:1090 sets the value to 1090 for all AMD cards
  - arbitrary string that starts with letter and can contain letters, numbers and asterisks, which is matched against the GPU name as listed by PhoenixMiner.
    Example: gtx*1070:+500 will set value +500 for all cards which contain 'gtx' and '1070' in their names with anything
    between them. This will match 'Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070' but not 'Nvidia GeForce 1070'.
    
Note that if more than one selector matches given card, than only the last one counts.
Example: -cclock *:1100,1-4:1090,2:1300 will set card 2 to 1300; cards 1,2, and 4 to 1090;
and the rest of the cards to 1100 MHz core clock.

Anyone with the same issues? Or know a fix ?  (its getting annoying waking up or coming home to find no errors messages in windows or in the miner log, but the program had just turned off and will not restart.)

   This seems like Windows Defender issue. Turn off Windows Defender completely (it can be done with gpedit.msc) and see if the issues go away.



Dear developers. Do you know why every month the ETH hashrate decreases a bit on 1070-1080Ti video cards? About 2-3 MX per year. On AMD cards and on 1066 - this does not happen, everything is ok there. Thank you in advance!

I also wants to know answer this question. In the first half of this year my 6 1070 have 192Mh. Now they have 183.8Mh. Moreover I decreased MC, because with MC I used before, hashrate is even less. But there is nothing incorrect shares, so looks like hardware works good.

   This is a long-standing problem with Nvidia 10x0 cards. As it started above certain size of DAG and gradually lowers the hashrate with each new epoch, it seems to be related to the TLB size (yes, TLB strikes again). At this point the only workaround is to increase the power limit (and thus indirectly the core clock) but whether it is worth it depends on your electricity prices. We are testing some theoretical fixes for this problem but the results are not very encouraging. Nvidia could probably fix this with driver update by increasing the page size as AMD did in the past but it is not very likely that they will bother to do it.

I recently have this problem, posting here because I use this miner, although its probably windows problem.

I start my miner by remote logging and manually starting miner. However, about month ago, win10 changed

behavior...when I shut down remote conection, rig machine goes to sleep after 1h exactly. I did all usual

sleep/hibernation stuff, even some advanced registry stuff I found on net, but nothing works


Anyone had similar problems and solved it?

@PhoenixMiner

why are you enumerating the gpus starting from 1 and not from 0?
is there any way to change it so it will not be so "uniquely authentic" to the miner?

Thank you for the suggestion, I tried it, disabled defender, ran program, no restart, same issue no change. I also went through disabled all other types of software and network related policies, tried again, no change. I guess ill bite the bullet and do a full wipe and reinstall of windows.

It's a good choice that you have decided to fresh install Windows.
Anyway, I'll recommend installing Windows 10 LTSC version as it is very stable, no feature updates so it won't go updating itself middle of the night and break something.
After installing, perform all the security updates, then disable automatic updates through group policy and start mining.
It'll run as stable as a Linux system.

Thank you very much for this information, I did not know about this version before and i will definitely be using it for the fresh install. thanks again

Hello,
I have some vega 56 and 64 founder edition (ssamsung memory).
I'm trying to find some settings for them but it keep crashing.

I'm using this one on vega 56 : --rc 38 --rcdrd 12 --rcdwr 5 --rp 11 --faw 13 --RRDL 3 --rtp 4 --ref 15600
but i get only 41mh/s with crash.

Do I need to flash bios them with 64 bios ?

Is there any good specific timing for ETH on Vega 64 and 56 ?

Thanks

I have made one custom windows especially for mining, I have removed almost all useles junk, including windows defender, windows update, store, xbox, services, programs, etc.

I use it since 1 month and 0 errors, 0 restarts/updates/troubles.

You can try it.

Is original Windows 10 PRO 1709 ISO downloaded from microsoft, modded with N-Lite software tool version 1.8.0.6790.

During installation will ask for serial (you can skip it as usual) and activation too after finishing.

You can use any valid serial of Win 10 PRO (only pro), if you want to activate it.

Cheers!

Not sure I trust a modded Windows 10 OS. No offense but what's to prevent you from tossing in something malicious? (Trojan, Keylogger, Packetsniffer etc.)
I like the idea though.

Definitely. Flash your Vega 56 with 64 air bios.
It'll help as it will increase the memory frequency of the card.
In 56 bios, I was able to hit 935 MHz but with 64 air bios flashed the memory frequency was stable at 1100MHz.
Any further and it was unstable.

Anyone tried already new 19.11.2 AMD drivers? Miner supports them?

EDIT: I checked - new AMD 19.11.2 drivers have full PM support.

If the GPU has Samsung RAM then it will overclock really well which also goes for vega 56 with 64 bios flashed.
Flash the bios, increase mem and reduce core and subsequent voltages in overdriveNtool, use AMD Mem Tweaker to apply weak memory timings after that and run the miner. That's all I have to reach the highest possible hashrate in ETH and XMR.

I'll root for that. Everytime I need to do something with gpus I gotta translate them bloody 1-based indices.
